2008. NetSuite Goes After SAP – But Where is Business ByDesign?

We recently covered NetSuite's challenge to with their Renewforce program, but now they are setting their sights on a bigger target: SAP, the leader in Enterprise Software. NetSuite's new program, Business ByNetSuite, guarantees at least a 50% cost reduction for current SAP R/3 customers in comparison to the annual maintenance fees they currently pay. NetSuite emphasizes that this is not a direct price-to-price comparison, as with the perpetual license model of traditional software, customers pay upfront and continue to pay annual maintenance fees. In contrast, NetSuite's SaaS model only involves a subscription fee, which can be half the cost of the maintenance component of traditional software's total cost of ownership. NetSuite's timing is strategic, as SAP recently increased maintenance fees during the economic downturn. NetSuite has already showcased a successful conversion from SAP to their system, although they acknowledge that they cannot replace SAP entirely, as they primarily cater to small to midsize businesses, while SAP serves large corporations. NetSuite's offer is targeted at handling smaller divisions of large companies that may have adopted SAP R/3 as a result of acquisition. NetSuite also offers NetSuite-to-SAP connectors for enterprise reporting. Although SAP has their own SaaS offering called Business ByDesign, which analysts acknowledge as functionally complete and reasonably priced, there are potential execution problems and confusion with SAP's other offerings, such as Business One and Business All-in-One. SAP faces the challenge of entering the SaaS market without cannibalizing their on-premise software market. NetSuite is seizing the opportunity presented by SAP's positioning dilemma and capitalizing on SAP's blunders.

2007. NetSuite files for IPO

NetSuite, an on-demand applications company controlled by Larry Ellison of Oracle, has submitted a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to initiate an auction-style initial public offering (IPO). The company seeks to raise $75 million through the offering, and it is presently under the control of Tako Ventures, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lawrence Investments, which is in turn owned by Larry Ellison. Ellison's affiliates and family members currently hold a 74 percent stake in the company, raising concerns about potential investor enthusiasm due to the ongoing control. With Ellison's controlling interest, the possibility of a future buyout of NetSuite may be limited, even if it is deemed beneficial by the management and other investors. Furthermore, a controlling interest of 50 percent or more exempts NetSuite from certain corporate governance standards imposed by Nasdaq and the New York Stock Exchange. However, the timing seems favorable for an IPO, as the second quarter has seen a significant number of offerings, particularly in the tech sector. NetSuite provides hosted customer relationship management (CRM) software, competing directly with, and also offers enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and e-commerce solutions. Although the company experienced substantial revenue growth, generating $67.2 million in 2006 (an 84.6 percent increase from the previous year) and $23.2 million in the quarter ending March 31, it has a history of losses, with a net loss of $23.4 million in 2006 and $3.7 million in the March quarter. As of the March quarter, NetSuite's accumulated deficit stands at $193 million. While the details of the IPO, such as the number of shares and price range, are yet to be determined, the proceeds will be utilized for working capital and to repay the outstanding balance on the company's $20 million secured line of credit with Tako Ventures. Additionally, NetSuite has engaged in some deals with Oracle, including a $2.5 million perpetual license agreement in 2005 and a software exchange with Oracle Racing for marketing and promotion purposes.

NetSuite also emphasized enhanced customization features and strengthened integration with Microsoft products, targeting small and medium-sized businesses as their core audience. The executive expressed confidence in NetSuite's ability to serve these customers effectively and suggested that SAP may struggle to replicate their level of maturity and ease of use in their offerings for smaller businesses.

2005. NetSuite's CEO chides slow Microsoft

According to NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson, Microsoft's entry into the on-demand CRM software sector is not a concern for his company, and he believes that until established players like Siebel are overthrown, they remain friendly rivals. Nelson acknowledges the success of competitors like and RightNow in the on-demand CRM market and believes there is enough room for all three companies to thrive. He suggests that other vendors are too far behind to enter the market, emphasizing that NetSuite, RightNow, and were all founded in 1998 and have successfully navigated challenges to emerge as leaders. Nelson doubts Microsoft's ability to quickly catch up, stating that even with their financial resources, they will need to build their own solution rather than acquire established players. Nelson also dismisses the idea of NetSuite being sold to Microsoft, considering major shareholder Larry Ellison's stance. He is skeptical about Microsoft's timeline for building a competitive CRM product and expresses uncertainty about where the market will be in 2012. Nelson views Siebel as a struggling company and believes few firms would consider acquiring it, while he has doubts about the product offerings from SAP.
